November Sketch and Crafty Challenge!

Hello! It's Christa here and it is my turn to host our monthly Sketch & Crafty challenge!  We hope you are finding time in the cooler fall months to warm up your creativity. Let's begin with the sketch.

I created a nice, simple design that I hope you have fun using!

For the Crafty portion of the challenge, here's the scoop: Use something OLD, something NEW, something BORROWED and something BLUE! (I was inspired by my nephew who got engaged very recently!)

Here's my inspiration layout, using both the Sketch and Crafty challenge, featuring my daughter, Adriane. Her friend took these 'modelling' shots for fun and they really made me smile. In fact, photos were the  BORROWED element as they came from her iPad.

My something OLD was the brad on the title frame. I've had those lying around for a few summers and this chevron brad was waiting for something special! My something NEW was the Simple Stories line "Good Day Sunshine"  that I picked up this summer and haven't had the chance to use. (much...)  My something BLUE is the matting colour and the bits of sky blue in the patterned paper.

So! Share your OLD, NEW, BORROWED and BLUE while working with the sketch! Be creative and you can be entered into a random draw to win a $25 gift certificate to TSF!!!!

Please remember, in order to qualify and be in with a chance of winning, you must use the SKETCH and the CRAFTY portion of the challenge. Also, this month we would like you to identify the OLD, NEW, BORROWED and BLUE elements of your design. Just add the description to your blog or gallery post.

  • Enter as many times as you like with each new entry showing an interpretation of both the Sketch and Crafty element of this month's challenge.
  • Each creation will gain you one entry into the draw to win.  Please enter a double page as only one entry. 
  • Proects must be linked using the tool below in order to be entered to win.
